Burrard Bridge

English Bay

Walking across Burrard Bridge in Vancouver this morning and looking out to English Bay the view was more spectacular than ever. I paused in the middle of the span and took this shot using the panorama setting on my iPhone 6S. It was only later that I checked this week’s Photo Challenge from Cheri in which she has invited us to “share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting.” I think this will do don’t you? 🙂

If you would like to see more pictures of this beautiful Art Deco Bridge that was opened in 1932 check out my post a bridge for all from November 2014, which I posted at that time for the third week of Cheri’s Photography 101.

Happy first day of April.

Photography 101, Weekend Three: Hone your camera eye

101 weekend ip

This weekend’s exercise covers most of the assignments from the past three weeks of Photography 101 all in one post, and even manages to meet the weekly Photo Challenge: Angular.

On Saturday morning, after reading Cheri’s suggestion to observe and capture an entire scene, I took my trusty Pentax Kr and did just that. Burrard Bridge is an Art Deco style bridge that was opened in July 1932 and is one of Vancouver’s three bridges that cross False Creek with English Bay shimmering to its west. Saturday morning saw the usual joggers, walkers, cyclists and cars all making up a wonderful potpourri of colours and movement, which I hope you will enjoy.
